Australian Muslim History

Australian Muslim History

Muslim fisherman from Makassar in Southern Sulawesi, Indonesia made annual visits to Australia from at least the 17th century CE

This Gallery highlights Australian Muslim history and contributions. Through the Boundless Plains display, the Museum traces the history of Australian Muslims – from the Makassans to the Afghan cameleers and beyond. The Gallery also showcases Muslim migration from Turkey, Albania, Bosnia and Lebanon to Australia in the 20th century, and concludes with a display of inspiring Australian Muslims working across arts, sports, politics, media and business in the present day.
